F*cking Organizing

So I’m the host to the 18-35 munch in Montreal at the moment, and we’ve been wildly successful and got very big. There’s some problems though. See this as a release of steam, I’m not mad at the munch guests.

1) The age thing- people trying to squeak under in their late 30s or older, or bringing an older partner. This is not making other people happy. I have to make a blanket ruling about this for the munches now.

2) Hosting issues- We’re too big for most venue’s reserved spaces. Everyone wants the cheapest possible drinks, a semi-private area, food and good mingling, but is opposed to space rentals. People are complaining it’s too crowded.

3) People behaving badly- I need to wrangle a harassment case, though the person making the complaint is stubbornly refusing to be specific. We’re getting big enough we attract creepers. There’s enough people that I’m now getting “too cliquey!”

4) I think it’s big enough to need to be a¬†committee¬†effort, but organizing that, alone, is also a headache.
